Patin Couffin engine

Re-booted my (Acer) computer some time after (i.e., not straight after) downloading latest versions of ‘1 Click DVD Copy’ and ‘AnyDVD’.

Got a Found New Hardware message. It is asking for the file ‘Pcouffin.sys’ on the Patin-Couffin disk.

I don’t have such a disk and Acer tell me that it isn’t one of theirs.

I seem to recall this matter arising once before. After using Search, I entered a file path, but it was not accepted by the Found New Hardware Wizard.

What do I do, please?

Thanks - Ken

Ken again. Specifically, when I point the Found New Hardware Wizard to either of two paths (located by using Search), I get the message: ‘An error occured during the installation of the device. The system can not find the file specified.’

What gives, please, and what to do?!

For the record, one such path was: C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers

The other was: C:\Documents and Settings\Ken\Application Data

Thanks - Ken

Several comments:

Take a look at this thread: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=126729

Do you have DVD43 installed? If you do, remove it if you plan on using AnyDVD. This is addressed in other threads.

If you need to edit/update or correct a post, I believe you have 30 minutes to edit it and then save changes. You do not need to post another message.

Here is another thread that is discussing the Patin-Couffin engine and drivers. If you are using VSO software, as they are discussing, it tells how to get in installed.

If you are not using VSO software, it may still be a software you are using that is asking for the file.

Still, it has nothing to do with AnyDVD…

‘bilbo’ is quite right - nothing to do with ‘AnyDVD’, as it turned out. I did a complete re-install of ‘1 Click DVD Copy’ and that fixed the problem with the Patin-Couffin driver.

Thanks - Ken

Update. Did a re-boot today. Am STILL getting a Found New Hardware message saying the Patin-Couffin engine needs to be installed. As my ‘1 Click DVD Copy’ has been working well (used in combination with ‘AnyDVD’), can I safely ignore the message? How can I stop it appearing each time I re-boot?

Thanks - Ken

@ Ken52,

As other Forum Members have pointed out your posting doesn’t have any thing to with the AnyDVD software program and as such your posting is off topic for this Forum.

Have you visited the “1 Click DVD Copy” Web Site (http://www.1clickdvdcopy.com) and looked there for an answer to your Patin-Couffing problem? If you looked there under the “1 Click DVD Copy” Web Site FAQ’s you would find the flowing ->

Question: -> What do I do when I get this message: “Can’t connect to hardware access layer: Patin-Couffing or ASPI layer”?

Answer: -> You may need to force the installation of the Patin Couffin drivers. Make sure you have Administrator access rights on your computer. Some registry entries must be created in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE section of the registry and this requires administrator rights.

Quite possibly if you pursue this information posted in the “1 Click DVD Copy” Web Site (http://www.1clickdvdcopy.com) FAQ’s you will be able to correct your problem, if not you need to have a Moderator move your posting to the appropriate CD Freaks “1 Click Copy” Forum (http://club.cdfreaks.com/forumdisplay.php?f=110).
